ABSTRACT
The article examines the success of the video-sharing Web site YouTube in Japan. Since its debut in that country in June, 2007, YouTube has become the 4th most popular Web site in Japan. While Japanese motion picture and television trade groups have demanded that the site crack down on unauthorized postings of copyrighted material, other Japanese broadcasters have begun creating Internet television programs designed to be posted on YouTube.
